The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
Zombies with Cameras
Josie drank coffee as the darkness waned. She’d been awake for hours.
She’d discovered an online insomniac community. Some couldn’t go to sleep right away, some woke up in the middle of the night. Others, like her, woke up too early.
They photographed what they saw when they wished they were sleeping. A collection of their photos, “Zombies with Cameras,” hung in a gallery, with the opening ceremony that night.
The photographers hadn’t met before; they’d recognize each other by their “Sleeping is Overrated” buttons and insomnia-induced lifeless movements.
The sun rose. Another long day – and night – awaited.

Wow! You are so imaginative! That could, and should, be a real thing.

What a great concept.
I rarely experience true insomnia. Thanks for this glimpse into the lives of those who do.
What an interesting idea! I agree, it should be a real thing.
Zombies with cameras. Not quite what I expected and definitely well played.
